The International Monetary Fund (IMF) will further lower its growth forecast for the global economy. This was announced by the head of the IMF, Kristalina Georgiewa, at an appearance at Georgetown University in Washington.
Georgieva warned that the situation could very well get worse before it gets better. In view of the war and the pandemic, uncertainty remains extremely high. There could be more economic shocks. Financial stability risks are increasing.
The IMF and World Bank are holding their annual meetings in Washington next week. The IMF will publish its new forecast for the development of the global economy on Tuesday.
